Eliza mimics a Rogerian psychotherapist. She passed a restricted Turing test for machine intelligence. Eliza [Weizenbaum, 1966] was one of the first AI programs and impressed many people who talked to her. The name is derived from the cockney speaking Eliza of G.B. Shaws “Pygmalion”, who learned to talk increasingly well.

To chat with Eliza, imagine you are suffering from sadness, anxiety or sth. similar. You can talk to Eliza and she will respond. Of course, she is not really intelligent …

Hi, I'm Eliza.
